Well Spring is just around the corner, which corner I am not sure ....... but we still a way of having a good time as we watched the North American Dog Sled Races at the Fur Rondy Winter Carnival in Anchorage Alaska. The La Cabana Mexican Restaurant served up good food and drink and we enjoyed a beautiful winter day! Good conversation was only punctuated by the President receiving the PERPETUAL BIRD from the members!!! What a crazy bunch! Check out the calendar on page 5 for future gatherings and if you couldn't make this one, hope to see you at the next one!!!!!
Our Veterans Museum Vietnam display is very nice, we invite all to go by and check it out! They could also use some volunteer help a couple of hours each month at the museum, so think about it! Thanks to Tim, Red and Terry for their volunteer efforts.
